Thomas-Dream Sequence #3-M - Product Information

Dr. Tracy Thomas' Dream Sequence series is in 3 parts. This part, Dream Sequence 3is dedicated to his wife Bridgett. It is playable on a 4.3 octave marimba with 4 mallets.

Over the years, Thomas has had many students that enjoyed learning 4-mallet technique but could not connect with the "classical" music they were playing because, like Thomas, the only music they listened to at that age was pop/rock music. In this set of three pieces, Thomas tried to capture the harmonic language of pop music and blend it with elements of the modern classical marimba repertoire. Throughout the set of three pieces, the technique and musical material of each becomes more complex and challenging while maintaining its connection with the pop music that inspired them. Whether as a whole set or on their own, these pieces would be ideal for contests or recitals.
Difficulty - Grade 4 (intermediate)

Dr. Thomas was born and raised in Mexico, MO. For the past six years, he has been teaching percussion at Missouri Western State University, where he received his B.S. in Music Education with a performance emphasis in 2003.

His piece, Three Songs for Soprano and Marimba, won third place in the Percussive Arts Society International Composition in 2008, and some of his compositions are on the Prescribed Music List for the state of Missouri's high school competitions. His music is performed frequently throughout the country as well as overseas and as a composer, he is dedicated to writing quality works not only for professionals, but also for developing musicians at various levels of ability.

As an active performer, he has given numerous solo recitals at universities throughout the country, was a featured soloist at the 13th annual Percussion Festival in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and specialized in chamber music with the Helianthus New Music Ensemble and the Tasty Pear Percussion Duo.
